I attended a gun show last Saturday. There were two classes of interest-those who just wanted a mag fed semiauto but didn't have the cash in hand and those who were hoping to score a high dollar AR on the cheap. Neither of those groups were actually buying anything. I traded a used AR for a like new Win model 70 and wad of money equal to double what I had invested in the AR.
I'm just saying that even though you saw stuff priced at fairly high $$, doesn't mean there were really buyers at that level.
